Session 3F: Rethinking the Skyscraper

October 17, 2016
1:45 PM – 3:15 PM

As architecture keeps expanding vertically, and as the skyscraper continues to gain traction around the world as a predominant built typology, we must investigate and understand new ways to vertically stratify the critical aspects of our cities. Presentations here examined entirely novel applications of the skyscraper, with an emphasis on their unique urban implications.
